Rohan Matmary wins Glenfiddich’s World’s Most Experimental bartender India title

Rohan Matmary from Bangalore bagged World’s Most Experimental Bartender 2018 title at the India leg of the compettion organised by Glenfiddich, world’s most awarded single malt Scotch Whisky. Matmary was paired with famous musician, Sonam Kalra at the competition and was selected as the India winners by the jury comprising  Mandira Bedi, Zorawar Kalra, Gaurav Gupta, Thukral and Tagra, Nikhil Arora, James Pennefather and Vikram Aditya. 

The wining duo will now go on to compete against other market winners on a trip to the Glenfiddich Experimental Bartender Academy in Scotland, where they will have the opportunity to bring their concept to life. The winner will be awarded with the title of ‘The World’s Most Experimental Bartender’ and Glenfiddich will, thereafter work with the winning duo throughout 2018 to showcase their creativity globally and bring it to life for on-trade. 

Six finalists were paired with eminent figures from different industries and walks of life at the competition. 

The winning cocktail created by winning pair was titled ‘Zarra’, an Urdu word meaning ‘particle’. Zarra starts with the award winning Glenfiddich 12-year-old, infused with cranberry, tiny tangerines, egg white and sage infusion, hibiscus, and rhubarb which resonated well with the fruity and floral notes of the Glenfiddich 12-year-old single malt whisky. Rohan mixed these seemingly disparate elements together, just as Sonam harmoniously blended beautiful melodies with poetry at the competition.

 Commenting on the awards, Angad Singh Gandhi, Brand Ambassador, Glenfiddich India said, “Glenfiddich has always been at the forefront of innovation, and through this unique pairing of bartenders and collaborators, we once again established ourselves as an ignition platform for creative expression. The experience created by Rohan Matmary and Sonam Kalra was truly experimental as it perfectly brought out the best of both the creative individuals. We wish them all the very best as they set out to compete for the global title.”
